there was a chant inside, paul ryan sucks. is paul ryan hurting you or helping you? >> well, i don't want to be knocking paul ryan. i think he could be more supportive to the republican nominee. we're doing well. i think we're going to win the election. >> reporter: do you think he wants you to win? >> well maybe not. maybe he wants to run in four years or maybe he doesn't know how to win. maybe he doesn't know how to win. who can really know? >> reporter: have you cross the the line in the past with women, ever? >> i don't think so. i have great respect for women, tremendous respect for women. reason, or maybe they are part of the clinton campaign, and i think a couple of them were involved somehow with the clinton campaign. the one that i met on an airplane 30, 35 years ago, i mean, nobody can believe that's a believable story. listen to that story. in addition to that, there's even a witness, but, i mean, can anyone really believe that a
the point is, it's lies. pure lies. and the media shouldn't be playing that up. even you asking the question, the media's playing it up, but i don't mind because i like telling people, pure lies, it was fabricated stuff in all cases. >> last question. big debate on wednesday. which donald trump are we going to see in we saw an aggressive, in your own element, that sec debate, will we see that candidate in the next debate? >> well, i think so. there's a lot to be aggressive about. she's done a terrible job. look at isis even mosul, why do they attack mosul with all the notice? four months notice, attack. why not just go in and get -- now what happened? one of the primary reasons, maybe the primary reasons, we wanted to get the leaders of isis. they are gone. they left. what are they doing -- >> reporter: saying it was a waste? >> saying they are attacking mosul for the primary reason to get the leaders of isis, but if you want leaders of isis, go in surprise and you do, like, you know, you want to surprise people. don't go in and announce it all over abc and every other place.
i think the way our country's being run, tom, is so ridiculous. but mosul is an example. they are fighting for mosul. the leaders have left. i'm saying, what are you going to do? frankly, who is going to be the winner of that battle? iran. because iran is unfortunately taking over iraq. so they are doing that, really, in my opinion, because they want to have some kind of a little skirmish prior to the election. that's all it is. >> reporter: thank you, mr. trump, thank you for your time. appreciate the time, thank you. >> yeah. >> donald trump talking to abc's tom llamas, and trump's wife is speaking out ten days after the video was released to the public after an avalanche of allegations. melania trump told cnn that she doesn't believe the women accusing her husband of kissing or groping them, but acknowledged his language was unacceptable, but chalks it up to boy talk. >> i don't know that person that would talk that way, and that he would say that kind of stuff in private.
